2. – Hollywood Vampires // Until Thurs. 17 November // 99 Mary Street – – (FREE)
London-based street artist Pure Evil (a.k.a. Charles Uzzell Edwards) continues 99MS’s impressive streak of exhibitions featuring pioneering British artists. Pure Evil’s international signature comes in the form of his fanged bunny, sprayed the world over. His Nightmares output was a series of portraits that depicted world famous icons in Warhol-esque fashion, each character shedding a stylised tear. Expanding upon this series, Pure Evil brings to Sheffield Hollywood Vampires. Icons from times past become weeping, vampiric beings. In this stellar exhibition, Pure Evil’s highly influential work lands in Sheffield and should not be missed.
3. – Algomech 2016 // Sat. 12 Nov. – Sat. 19 Nov. // Various Locations – – (£0-£25)
Algomech is a festival of Algorithmic and Mechanical Movement – in fact, it’s the only festival of Agorithmic and Mechanical Movement (so far). It finds its home here in Sheffield, heart of industry and artistic energy. Featuring talks, e-textiles, and sound production, prepare to get stuck in at workshops in crafting sound with the typed word. Algomech relishes Sheffield’s history of electronic music, hosting several musical events. The festival’s music culminates in an Algorave: combining mechanical techno with algorithmic electronics.
